Why dental exams are important

Who Are Pediatric Dentists?

The first dental visit could happen as early as 6 months, and regular dentists are not trained to treat toddlers. Pediatric dentists specialize in treating toddlers, children, and teenagers. We will examine your child’s teeth and gums and x-rays may be taken if your child’s dentist feels the need. Then we will clean your child’s teeth and apply topical fluoride to help protect the teeth against decay.

Tips for an Enjoyable "First Dental Appointment"

  • Give your child a tour of the office before your actual appointment. Need assistance? Ask our staff and we would be glad to help!
  • Read some kid-friendly books about dentists.
  • Explain to them the importance of dental checkups and how dentists help to maintain good oral health.
  • Share stories of positive dental appointments you’ve had yourself.
